Hemingway is one of the best tools for bloggers and online writers. It is easy to use. It highlights long, compound sentences, and common mistakes in your document. Also, there is a color code, so you will know what errors you have made. For instance, it will highlight the text in blue which means adverbs and weakening phrases, and you need to remove them.  You can use Hemingway by downloading the application on your personal computer or by accessing online. And with the latest version of Hemingway, you may bold and italicize the text, and use bullets, link, and numbers.
